Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap, Part 6, Cement Manufacturing
- Mar 9, 2023 3:48 pm GMT
Occasionally I come across a document that is overwhelming in scope and information-content. This requires me to adjust how I post papers based on this document if it falls within the scope of subjects that I normally write about and contains information my readers would want to read. The DOE Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap is one of those documents.
As I was skimming through the primary document, I decided pretty quickly that this would require multiple papers to cover, and thus a series. Part 6 is on Cement Manufacturing. In 2020, the United States produced 87 million metric tons (MT) of Portland cement and 2.3 million MT of masonry cement at 96 plants in 34 states. Of those, 86 plants employed the dry kiln process and nine used the wet kiln process. In 2020, sales of cement were around $12.7 billion and consumption was about 102 million MT. Texas, Missouri, California, and Florida have the highest cement production, in that order, and they account for about 45% of U.S. cement production.
